Purchased the Seagate GoFlex Satellite (wifi harddrive) and am enjoying it. Works great with iDevices and am trying to get it work with Nook Color. Specifically want to store my digital copies of my purchased dvd's and blu-rays. My typical Nook Color settings in Handbrake work fine for videos stored on the NC, but when stored on my Seagate GoFlex, I get Video Cannot Be Played error. My videos can be accessed and played on my iDevices just fine. Finally tried using AVS Video Converter and now the videos can be access by my NC via the GoFlex, but the quality is less then stellar. I have used a program called MediaInfo to inspect the video clips and cannot determine the difference between the great looking Handbrake rips verus the not-great looking AVS rips. If anyone had any ideas or suggestions please reply. I am happy to post the MediaInfo exports for folks to compare (simple txt files). I have trimmed a clip of How To Train Your Dragon so I can quickly try different settings. Open to any ideas. Thanks in advance.

Solved! Thanks to Mitch over at DVD Catalyst, this has been resolved. There is a streaming flag on MP4 files that is not checked by default on many tools. Running the clip thorugh DVD Catalyst with this option checked makes the video streamable from a wifi device.
